Episode Info: Tony Funderburk - Music Producer, Author, Singer Songwriter, Podcaster in Colorado Springs All across the universe The Beatles created a lot of enjoyable music. And a bunch of nonsense, too. I only bring it up because (randomly…or was it?) one of their songs came across my computer desktop today. “Across the Universe” from their “Let It Be” album. So, I read the lyrics and a little background about them. John Lennon wrote the words. And, as usual, he was mixed up. The universe isn’t random even if thoughts are. Here’s a few words from John Lennon’s song… “Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyesThey call me on and on across the universeThoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter boxThey tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe” The “Let It Be” album music was recorded in the last couple of years in the sixties and released in 1970. So, there’s a high probability (pun somewhat intended) that John smoked a little wacky weed before he wrote the lyrics. I could be wrong, it’s just a hunch. Anyway, Lennon was influenced by all sorts of anti-God sources. And those sources of influence certainly included evolution and its proponents. Randomness flows from every line. And yet, somewhere from inside John, a sense of clarity rises up. And he sings, “Nothing’s gonna change my world” four times for the chorus. An absolute, resolute statement. But, in the randomness of chance universe, there are no absolutes. They’re mutually exclusive from the Creator God. And, unfortunately, that truth is lost on those who prefer self-serving philosophy over reality. So here’s my short lyrical portrait of the universe. All across the universe God’s fingerprints are found. Simplicity, complexity Reveal Him all around. Randomness did not create A single grain of sand. And logically and lovingly We’re here because God planned Humans who could be His friends, Enjoying all He made. Gigantic and invisible His thoughts toward us cascade. And, instead of doubt and fear, We really should immerse Ourselves in all His love we see Across the universe. © 2020 Tony Funderburk The universe holds an almost infinite amount of examples of how life has Rhyme and Reason because God made you, Discover my books on or SmashwordsGrab some Merch All across the universe random thoughts are sounding worse ...
